Day 3: 30 Days of TV - Favorite New Show (2010)

Day 3: Your favorite new show that started in 2010.

My favorite new show of the year I found about in an odd way. On a Frontier Airlines flight to California. They were showing short previews of shows on the TVs in front of our faces. Pretty brilliant with the mostly bored and mostly captive audience.

I recognized some of the actors and then there was singing. So I was hooked... even with the baby being involved.

It's a warm and wacky family comedy centered around the product of a one-night stand with a serial killer.

How fun!

The writing is tight, the deliveries are spot on and the male lead is endearing, which I wasn't sure he'd be able to pull off with the razzle dazzle that was surrounding him. But he has.

It has Martha Plimpton as a hording cleaning lady. (I know you loved Goonies as much as I). Garrett Dillahunt as a very well intentioned lawn service man. (Did you watch the Sarah Conner Chronicles? He is funny too!). They play the too young to be grandparents... grandparents.

And then there is occasional bits of non sequiter gold with Chloris Leachmen as Maw Maw a semi-nude octagarian who has Alzhimer's.

Oh and the out of his league, but so cute and sarcastic Shannon Woodward as Sabrina.

I mean lookit her.

This is the show that is on after that show on Fox with singing and barely any continuity.

Stick around and watch it.

And check in on the others...

Ceasing Ramble.

Every time I watch the first five minutes I always love it. Maybe I'll make a New Years resolution to tape the whole show now.
